Assistive applications for smartphones

The proposal is for two projects designed in conjunction with Nokia and CanAssist in the research theme of assistive applications for smartphones. The first project focuses on support for the growing senior population, designed to help seniors retain independence for as long as safely feasible. The second focuses on support for individuals with visual disabilities, designed to use smartphones to convert the visual information into voice information for way finding and navigation.
